Long-Term Addiction Rehab & Recovery Program at Duffy’s in Northern California

At Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab in Northern California, our goal is to deliver focused treatment services that provide men and women with the care that puts them in the best position to achieve and maintain long-term recovery. Depending upon a guest’s specific strengths, needs, and treatment goals, customizable aspects of our programming may include the type, intensity, and duration of care.

About Duffy's Treatment

For individuals whose needs may be best met by a treatment experience that extends beyond the more traditional four weeks of treatment, we are proud to offer the Extended Care Program, our long-term treatment and relapse prevention treatment track. Several studies have established a correlation between longer lengths of stay in treatment and improved rates of sobriety, and this option is specifically designed to capitalize on the many benefits of longer treatment.

At Duffy’s, guests may transition to the Extended Care Program following the completion of their 30th day in our care. As is the case with all programming at our center, the specific amount of time that a person will remain in treatment will be determined by his or her progress toward his or her treatment goals, but generally, individuals who participate in this program will remain in treatment for 60 to 90 days.

Duffy's Treatment Therapies & Modalities

The Extended Care Program continues the Duffy’s tradition of providing a highly personalized experience to each guest, and incorporates the unparalleled level of professional services that has enabled Duffy’s to maintain a national reputation for excellence for more than 40 years. A guest’s schedule while in the Extended Care Program will balance learning sessions, discussions, and counseling with time that is dedicated to relaxation, exercise, and the forming of productive new friendships. Depending on an individual’s specific needs and goals, his or her time in this extended program may feature the following elements:

Medication management: Though this is not a dual diagnosis program, we are able to provide addiction treatment services to men and women who have a primary diagnosis of a substance use disorder and who are also experiencing certain co-occurring mental health disorders, as long as these individuals are stable when taking medication as directed by their prescribing professional. Our staff may assist guests who need medication management services by securing and providing access to medications, monitoring the self-administration of these medications, and facilitating appointments with a psychiatrist on an as-needed basis.

Individual therapy: All guests at Duffy’s are assigned a primary care counselor for the duration of their time in our care. Among the services provided by the primary counselor are twice-weekly individual therapy sessions. These one-on-one meetings are excellent opportunities for guests to process their emotions and experiences and to receive guidance and support from an experienced professional.

Group therapy: Group therapy is an excellent opportunity for individuals in our Extended Care Program to share insights, learn from the experiences of others, and develop and hone the healthy interpersonal communication skills that can be essential to the successful pursuit of long-term recovery. Multiple group therapy sessions are conducted during each treatment day. While the specific content of any group will be influenced by the contributions of those who are participating, the following are among the general topics that may be addressed via group therapy during a guest’s time in the Extended Care Program:

  • Acceptance
  • Self-awareness
  • Mindfulness
  • Responsibility
  • Relapse prevention
  • Powerlessness and unmanageability

Family support: At Duffy’s, we are well aware of the impact that an individual’s struggles with addiction can have on friends, family members, and others who care about or depend on him or her. Substance use disorders do not just affect individuals, but also entire families, as the effects of one family member’s substance abuse ripples outward into the family system. As such, at Duffy’s, we are proud to provide family support and resources. These include family informational and support group on the weekend (online during the pandemic), and, if indicated in client’s counseling treatment, we also provide collateral contact between guest’s counselor and their loved one, or even a joint counseling session with guest, counselor, and loved one to provide helpful information, resources, treatment progress, and family planning for guest’s discharge back home.

Experiential therapy: The various types of experiential therapies that are included in the Extended Care Program at Duffy’s provide innovative and active opportunities for our guests to express themselves, connect with their emotions, and address issues from an alternative perspective than what is accomplished during traditional therapy groups. The following are among the experiential therapies that may be scheduled during a guest’s time in our Extended Care Program:

  • Art therapy
  • Meditation
  • Trust the Process
  • Crossing the Line
  • Music and recovery
  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

On July 26th, 2013, I entered Duffy’s after detoxing. Thanks to the good foundation I got here, I am still sober! I hope the first Monday’s activities are checking out what meetings you will go to after you leave Duffy’s. I am still going to the ones I wrote down 5 years ago. Thanks for being there for folks like me who could not stop drinking.
